Perfecto Valuable Features

There are a whole bunch of things that I like about the solution, but I really love the interaction it has with mobile devices, the testing capabilities, as well as reporting capabilities that we get from the application. The reports are very detailed. They provide all of the information needed for the testers and developers to really look at their applications and know if there are any issues or not.

Perfecto is excellent when it comes to executing cross-platform testing. They offer support, and their support is excellent. They're very responsive. With a lot of those cross-platform applications, we have to work together so that we can set up the configurations between the two interfacing applications, but it's very good.

When it comes to reporting, we take a look at how many users are using Perfecto, and for which devices. That helps us to narrow down exactly which devices are being used the most for the applications our teams are testing. I find the reports and the analytics to be extremely helpful. I cross-reference the user reports with the users' lines of business because it's helpful for us to know which users and which lines of business are using Perfecto.

The most widely-used reports are the individual testers' reports. When they run their automation scripts, it gives them a lot of the details about the test run, such as which components passed or failed. And when something fails, it points that out with an error so that the development and testing teams can look at what that error is pointing to.

And the cloud-based device lab is extremely important to our testing operations. The mobile device testing is one of the main things we use Perfecto for, although we do have a couple of teams that use the PC platforms as well. On a scale of one to 10, the importance of the mobile testing is a nine or 10.

Our testers have other means of testing our PC applications. They can test some of those applications from their local machines. They may or may not need access to Perfecto's PC resources, but for mobile devices, we have users who are offshore, and they do not have access to physical mobile devices. Having Perfecto's cloud-based application, users in India can access the cloud and do their testing. It's extremely important for our organization to be able to provide mobile devices for offshore testing.

We mainly use Appium among the open-source technologies that Perfecto supports. A couple of our PC teams may be using Selenium, but for the most part, the mobile users are using Appium, and the integration between Perfecto and Appium is excellent. If there is any issue for our Appium users, a lot of the time it's not on the Perfecto side, it's on our side; usually configuration issues.

Manual testing is definitely valuable. The insights feature is also valuable. I just started looking into that to get more data around the results of the testing. I'm looking to explore that one a bit more, but definitely, the manual testing and the insights are the top ones.

Their team is really great to work with. They're very flexible, and they always show care. They prioritize our work, our company, and our working relationship. I appreciate the ad hoc sessions that they schedule to provide help with troubleshooting, provide the information that we're looking for, or do a demo of a new feature that they have. They're always willing and very quick to get that scheduled for us. I appreciate that a lot.

The reporting feature is really tough to find in some of the other products that are competitors. Having your CITB type dashboard, where we can see the test results and see recordings of each test that passed or failed, is probably one of the distinguishing aspects of Perfecto.

One of the good things about Perfecto is the scalability that it provides. We are able to quickly scale up the devices. We can choose Android devices, web-based applications, or whatever we need, and we can scale up quickly and easily.
